This study involves 53 patients with chronic spinal cord injury for 3 to 30 years in duration who had remained on catheter retention, had experienced different complications and were selected for urethral sphincterotomy. The pertinent and related literature, the results of patient evaluation and the indications, methods and complications of sphincterotomies will be discussed.
